Teas with Cheese

The Tea Plant and The Big Cheese recently hosted a tea and cheese pairing. Four teas and four cheeses were served. Bai Mu Dan was paired with Atlantic Mist, a brie style cheese from Mecox Dairy in Bridgehampton, NY. Jasmine Pearls was served with Farmhouse Cheddar (also from Mecox Dairy). Assam tea accompanied Moonlight Charoce Cheese, a St. Maure style cheese from Pine Plains, NY. Raspberry Melody, a black tea blend with raspberries and raspberry leaves, was served with Berkshire Blue Cheese from Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Then dessert was served! A Jasmine Pearls sorbet topped with toasted coconut as well as a mango truffle completed the tasting. Both of these were made by Kim from Live Island Cafe, a raw food paradise - thanks Kim.

The tasting went smoothly and all 27 guests enjoyed themselves. The only glitch was the overbrewing of the Assam. Unfortunately, the tea became too strong and quite bitter on the third infusion - sorry about that folks! Luckily, some guests received a good cup.

We are looking forward to our next event and have already started planning so stay tuned!

We can thank Kayne Rourke from Kayne Designs for taking all of the wonderful pictures.
